raIn the Open division we saw Brad Weber take down Terry Miller in a playoff and apparently it came down to Terry's nemesis hole #16 for Brad to take the overall win. They both had solid rounds of -15 but Brad edged Terry in the playoff.
In the Semi-Pro division we saw recent transplant from the Advanced Divison Lee Ireland take down the win with a -9.
Lee beat out Josh Servi by 1 and a couple of league regulars (Kyle Sparrow Cody Nass, Jason Frommeing and Brian Greibl) by 2 strokes.
In Advanced we saw a big reduction in players . . . some due to moving up and some who didn't return to leagues. We ended up with Jim Marek (who was marginally ready for Semi-Pro) shoot his best round ever at VV (-10), beating out newcomer (to VV leagues not to the game) Disc Dog who shot respectably well for Advanced (-7). We also saw newcomer Kevin Buckley shoot a (-3).
I also took some liberties and if you were or had been shooting over par you were placed in the Amatuer division . . . I know Greg Weber shot his personal best (-3) but he had been averaging over par for the spring season. Mike Szachewicz also shot a solid round of (E) to take second place. Ryan Hakala who had been playing in Advanced last season(when we didn't have enough people to really create an amatuer division) took the final cash in the Amatuer division.
In the Women's divison we saw 6 ladies show up . . . something I am thilled about. I hope the Valley View Leagues become known as the place for women (and children) who play disc golf, because this is clearly the place for Women and Beginners to learn the game and the rules we must all abide by,
If anyone has a problem playing in the division I have them listed please let me know. We can move you up if you want to play in a specific higher division but I was trying to equalize the divisions in scoring to the point where AM shoots even or above par, Advanced shoots about (E) to (-4), Semi Pro shoots (-4) to (-8), and Open shoots better than (-8). If you were new to the league I placed you where you shot, if you had an established record with us, I placed you where I expected you to shoot.
We did have one ace this week and that was by Pete Schaumberg (hole #8 and apparently he didn't even it chains) who hadn't been to league since last fall . . . now you all know he has taken your money . . . let's hope he returns to give some of it back to us.
